Stress and immunity are inextricably linked through the adrenal glands’ production of cortisol and cortisol’s regulation of secretory IgA. We’ll explore the most common adrenal stress patterns found on lab tests and explain the most clinically impactful treatment options available. These treatments were the subject of a Mayo Clinic research study that demonstrated their effectiveness in improving patient outcomes, reducing stress and improving energy.
Topics covered in this course:
- Review of different treatment options for the various stages of adrenal dysfunction
- Safe use of DHEA and pregnenolone to improve adrenal health and thereby strengthen first line immune defense
- How to get started with stress reduction programs that will improve sleep quality, improve energy and lead to a sense of well being that is elusive for many of our patients
Dr. Daniel Kalish is dedicated to teaching doctors Functional Medicine philosophy and practices. Through The Kalish Institute’s educational programs he has trained over 1,000 practitioners worldwide in The Kalish Method which solves patient challenges through a proven lab based approach.
In May 2016 a research study published by two Mayo Clinic researchers confirmed the efficacy of the Kalish Method showing significant improvements in GI health and quality of life in the study participants. The study was based on Dr. Kalish’s model of Functional Medicine based on 25 years of successful clinical results. Graduates of The Kalish Institute include practitioners ranging from Dr. Mercola’s medical staff to Mayo Clinic and Cleveland Clinic physicians.
